U-M Medical School Graduates 166 in the 166th class

May 13, 2016  //  FOUND IN: News,

Today, 166 future healthcare leaders will enter the University of Michigan’s historic Hill Auditorium as students, and leave as physicians. And as the 166th graduating class of the U-M Medical School, they’ll enter the profession of medicine at at time of change and promise.

They’ll take their Hippocratic oath before a new school flag designed by one of their fellow graduates, with symbols and colors representing medicine, knowledge, learning, leadership and humanity. The students graduating today didn’t all enter the Medical School at the same time, but they leave a school whose future they helped shape.

Marschall Runge, M.D., Ph.D., the first U-M Executive Vice President for Medical Affairs to also serve as dean of the medical school under a new leadership structure for the U-M Health System, will speak at today’s ceremony which will be streamed live at http://umhealth.me/commvid16.  Learn more about the graduating class, including key facts by clicking here.
